Hi Guys -

Josh and I just had an interesting problem on MacIntel. After running
and quitting out of a Croquet session the remote router still held onto
some connections from the (theoretically disconnected) client.
Investigating the problem further (via netstat -a on the client) indeed
confirmed that there were open socket connection between the VM and the
remote although the Socket objects inside the image were already destroyed.

What that means is that OS sockets survived a call to Socket>>destroy
(we verified that Socket>>destroy is indeed being called). Has anyone
seen similar behavior before? Any ideas what could causing this?
